Peach Cobbler… yum! My friend used to bring this delicious and easy peach cobbler recipe to our mother’s group every week. Like my cherry berry dump cake, it was only three ingredients!
Every Monday, a group of us would get together while our preschoolers attended a little bible-study. It was called MOPS and I looked forward to it each week. We would meet for breakfast and I had the chance to taste a ton of wonderful recipes like this cinnaomon roll skillet cake made by great friends.
I love dessert recipes, but this one takes the cake. Literally!
This recipe is amazing… and that’s an understatement.
Peach Cobbler goes by many names: Peach Cobbler, Peach Dump Cake, Boysout’s Cake, Sprinkle Cake, No-mix cake, 3-ingedient cake… but no matter what you call it, it always tastes great.
It is the type of cake that you walk by it in the kitchen, take one bite, thinking that is all that you will have… until that bite is gone and you find yourself going back for one more… and more…
How to make peach cobbler:
This recipe is my go-to when I need a dessert or any sort of casserole. It’s easier than a slow-cooker meal, and it doesn’t call for a cup of sugar… or even a 1/2 cup of sugar for that matter.
You only need 3 things: butter, dry cake mix, and peaches.
No need for all of the norman “baking ingrediets” like sugar baking powder and salt because this recipe has only three ingrediets.
How do you make peach cobbler?
Start by gathering the ingredients (only three) and then baking them together to make delicious treat…
INGREDIENTS FOR 3 INGREDIENT PEACH COBBLER RECIPE
- 2 cans peach slices (Peach pie filling also works which means no peeling the Georgia peaches!)
- 1 package of yellow cake mix (dry)
- 1/2 stick of butter
This is one of those easy recipes that you love baking – the best peach cobbler. In fact, it’s is so sweet that you don’t even need brown sugar!
How to Make Peach Cobbler:
When thinking about how to make peach cobber, just remember that it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 because there are three ingredients and three steps.
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 350. Then, pour the peaches into a large bowl or right into the baking dish (if you have fresh peaches on hand… you can mix them in!) You can get your peaches by uses fresh peeches & peeling the peaches until you have enough, but canned works just as well.
Spread the peaches around just a bit. If you’ve wondered how to make peach cobbler with canned peaches, this is the perfect recipe for you. Canned or fresh peaches- both taste delicious.
Gently spread the dry cake mix over the fruit mixture. (Do not mix it in with the fruit, just spread the cake mix on top of the fruit it with a spoon ).
Step 3. Take 1/2 stick of melted butter and pour it over the cake. This makes the cobbler topping.
You can also just cut it into slices & place it evenly over the cake. It makes the best topping – no need for sugar and cinnamon because this butter & batter recipe is as sweet as can be.
Or you could just take your cold (frozen) butter and use a vegetable peeler (as my husband does) to peel layers of it to place on this cake- it covers larger areas this way.
Some recipes call for 1/4 cup of lemon juice, but I don’t find that you need this at all- it’s delicous as it is!
Next, you need to cover the entire cake with pats of butter, like the picture below:
You’ll need to bake this cake for 40 minutes (or 45 minutes) at 350 degrees…
The cake is ready when it is golden-brown:
You’ll know it’s ready because you’ll see the fruit juices begin to bubble through any cracks in the topping.
Scoop it out…
You can eat it warm in the morning…
Or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top for an after-dinner snack or add some whipped cream for a quick dessert.
Between the peaches, cake mix, and ice cream- you’ll be sure this recipe took forever (no one will know it was an easy dessert that took just over 30 minutes to make!)
You won’t be able to stop at one bite… so go ahead… dig in to this peach cobber!
